Yes, I love a kitchen with white marble countertops.
The above kitchen is Joni's of Cote de Texas.
Yes, white marble countertops are lovely but and it's a big but...they are expensive.
Not long ago my friend Amy of
started obsessing about white marble and wishing for a kitchen full of it. And she did it!
Lots of marble in there now.
This is what it looked like before she changed it all.
She painted the cabinets, added shelving, installed a new faucet, installed a vintage sink,
put up a new backsplash and of course added the new countertops.
But she didn't want to spend lots of money on marble...so her new countertops are Formica!
Yes, Formica...the new 180fx Formica which sports a 8ft repeating pattern.
That means that you can have large expanses of countertop that look just like real stone.
This has been the perfect solution for Amy as she and her husband do not intend to live in this
house for much longer. They didn't want to spend a lot to have the kitchen of their dreams.
That's her vintage sink she bought off Craigslist.
Go on over to Amy's blog to read all about this kitchen redo.
She is going through the steps of it this week.
I have to say... I'm pretty jealous at the moment of her new kitchen.
The new countertops and backsplash and painted cabinets have lightened the space up so much.
It's just so darn pretty!
